Dental Technology at South Central Dentistry, Edmonton AB
The field of oral care is continually evolving. South Central Dentistry is committed to bringing current technologies to patients in the Edmonton area, for an improved dental experience and excellent treatment outcomes.
At South Central Dentistry, we believe that achieving a healthy smile should be as easy as possible and we strive to utilize the latest in cutting-edge dental technology to improve our diagnostic and treatment process.
Cone beam imaging has radically transformed the way that we can gather information, and allows us the ability to visualize, diagnose and treatment plan with precision that previously could not even be imagined. It is an advanced medical imaging technique to create a 3D image of your bone structure, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways and sinuses.
It gives us a complete picture of the layout of your jaws and teeth and also lets us manipulate the model digitally, allowing us to create a more personalized and highly accurate treatment plan.
It is quick and comfortable for our patients and provides us information to aid in many areas such as;
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- TMJ treatment
- Airway assessments
- Pathology detection of cysts and tumors
A Digital X-Ray offers many advantages compared to traditional dental photography, including a significant reduction in patient and staff’s radiation exposure, and clear images that we’re able view in seconds.
Our intraoral camera is a small, high-resolution camera that can provide access to details that may not be possible with other imaging devices.
The full colour photos help us to determine the best possible treatment plan for you.
By projecting images of exactly what is seen by our dental team, intra oral cameras can give you a better understanding of your treatment options – helping you to feel more actively involved in your care.
